True-story of WWII at its best. Cooper shows his versatility as both dramatic and comedic actor. Knowing it's a true story helps to make the story-line more believable, bearing in mind the Hollywood touches. Nice to see a movie with less "career-army" attitude and more of the "we're all in this together" from other walks of life. Shows the comaraderie of both different countries jointly in the war, as well as people from all aspects of life. Wassell also depicts the vulnerability of us all and allows us to hope that when times get tough that we, too, will use the right/best judgement when it counts.[Did Hoppy make it?]
